Windows 7: Bluetooth stack software needed? (for x64)

Bluetooth stack software needed? (for x64)

Hi there,

I did buy an bluetooth stereo-headset and would like to use it with my Sony Vaio laptop. Yet pairing doesn't work, it doesn't get detected. Here are my questions:

1. Could it be, that my bluetooth mouse is at fault for this, is blocking it? I have it connected now (before trying it the first time) with the optional cable (it's a Razer Orochi). How can I know if I can exclude the mouse as an error source or not?

2. Are laptops "multipoint"-capable at all? (I bought my one soon after its release in Q1/Q2 of 2010!) My one has "Bluetooth® 2.1 + EDR". You find a screenshot of my Bluetooth-Hardware-ID attached. It's a Broadcom thingy, I just updated it with their tool (as a Sony update didn't help/wasn't available), yet this didn't help too.

3. I've heard that Microsoft Windows (7) does not natively support A2DP-capable bluetooth hardware (as my headset), is that true? In this context I heard too, that for compatibility, you need a "bluetooth stack" software which costs a dime? Is that true? Do I need it, where do I get it and which would be the suitable one for my laptop?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Kind regards

Hi NoN, yeah I know the supply side , yet do I need one or might it be just a driver issue? And I didn't find any example e.g. on Broadcom's website to buy such a thing, I might need to see a specific example. *edit* And is there a public download source for BlueSoleil? I don't want to register on yet another website! thx.

I was wondering if you could have a look at Control Panel=>Sound, then see what is listed there and if the Bluetooth Headset appear....

Otherwise you might need a bluetooth stack. I was using bluesoleil software 2.4 as it cames with a dongle i bought. You might try to look at an older version than the v6 on their site in order to have it free.

@NoN: No, no headset appears there. As it wasn't recognized in the first place.

So if I get you right, you say one definitely needs this bluetooth stack software? Why is that not common knowledge? Where can I find proof of this / a source talking about this on the www?

And concerning Bluesoleil, I found their site by Google, thanks. :P The problem was more with Broadcom, and with both I'd need the specific subsite link, because for Broadcom I don't find the proper site (they have so much content) at all and for Bluesoleil, where do they offer an older software for free?? I see this nowhere! And I'd doubt they'd do it, because for most people they're happy if everything is running and don't always need they very newest software.

I had a look at every thread here (and elsewhere) I could find! Sadly I found no solution. If I tried to upgrade to the above driver with the main *.exe, please see the attached screenshot, fits the one in the first post obviously.
Also there are around five different *.msi and *.exe installers in the "x64" folder, how should I know which to install and which does what? If I use one of those, they'd install, but I don't know what they install? (No proper description or readme!) So I won't install it until I know what I do!

OK, I found the solution!! I did not pair it right! OMG sorry lol.
I already had wondered why it was blinking and not staying solid blue as in the description.
Took 10 seconds to hold instead of 4 as in the description!

Thanks man for your help!

OK, that's mean your windows 7 taking the A2DP. Now you know you have a software already installed.

If you feel it is definitely resolved issue, click upper right panel "!", type solved for those that might read this thread.

@Non: I think I marked it right "solved", did I?

Yet the issue isn't yet over. Now I get the message I'd not have proper/valid bluetooth licence for this PC!! (See screenshot, yet it's German, sorry...) Even though I already went back to my old, initial BT drivers, before I used the OFFICIAL Broadcom tool!

Why does Broadcom update me on their cr*p and then gives me such a message? I hate such things!...
